The Church Is Our Mother
Quotes from Christian History

Is the church our mother? This is what Christians have said about that from the earliest centuries of the church.

Polycarp, A.D. 120-165

If you study [Paul's letter to the Philippians], you will it find it to be the way to build you up in the faith you have been given, which—when it is followed by hope and preceded by love towards God, Christ, and our neighbor—is the mother of us all. (Letter to the Philippians 3)
